Hanging on To God's Promises...

Isaiah 55:8-9 says:

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord. "And the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."

Job 1:21 says:

"...the Lord gave and the Lord has taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord."

Jeremiah 29:11 says:

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

July 24th court date was postponed until further notice. MOWA extended their 2-week training 1 more day. We are hopeful we get in before court closure, but we are now just trying to trust that God's timing is best and rest in that. We know that when we finally have our son home, this roller coaster of emotions during the waiting period will be just a "blip" on the radar of life. It feels like eternity now, but it will be long forgotten once we have him home. Praying for all the other families who are still on this roller coaster (esp. those who have been on it much longer than we have). We should know more early next week....


  1. Remain faithful... God has made provisions for your family!

  2. So sorry.

    Praying for His peace as you wait on His timing.

  3. This is a tough place - being so close and then being tossed back into the unknown. I hope that things work out quickly and you will soon be on your way.

  4. Yuck! I just heard the news.

    This journey is certainly not easy.

    So sorry to hear about the postponed court date. Hopefully you will have a SUCCESSFUL one before the closure

  5. There are no better words than the ones you have posted. God is faithful! I hope you get good news next week!

  6. Big hugs to you all. : (
    I hope you get good news soon!
